A West Virginia month-to-month lease agreement is a residential rental contract between a landlord and tenant that renews on a monthly basis when the tenant pays the rent. The document should include the rental price, property description, security deposit, late fees, and utility expenses. Once it has been executed by both parties, the agreement becomes legally binding until either party terminates it with one (1) month’s written notice (or as specified in the contract). For the landlord’s security, it is recommended that they have tenants fill out rental applications to ensure that they get reliable renters occupying their property.
